The Greater Manchester Homeless Action Network (GMHAN) is a collaboration of everyone working to the mission of ending and preventing homelessness in Greater Manchester. It brings together all the different sectors, specialisms and experiences which are involved in achieving this mission, recognising that we can achieve more through collaboration and partnership.
Task Groups are part of the Co-ordination of the GM Homelessness Action Network, helping deliver its mission by:
Focusing on a specific purpose of the HAN (e.g. Learning; Lobbying; Delivery)
Lead on directing and galvanizing activity around that purpose
Propose their own short-term objectives to make progress toward it
Report back into the Co-ordination Group and wider network to involve others in emerging pieces of work and minimise duplication of effort
Put forward topics for Open Space sessions and items at Full Network Events
Tasks Groups are expected to meet monthly with ongoing communication between members around actions. They will be supported by any paid, dedicated resource available to the Network but retain ultimate responsibility for delivering their objectives. They will be reviewed yearly, with opportunity to rotate positions. Estimated time commitment for a normal member is 3-5 hours/month (2hour meeting, with extra for actions). Co-Chairs will be at the higher end of this.
For more information on the structure and roles of the HAN, see the Terms of Reference on the Resources page at www.gmhan.net
In keeping with wider Greater Manchester commitments to equality, the HAN wants to provide fair compensation via participation expenses for anyone joining these groups who is unwaged.
Participation expenses will paid for all meetings and preparation (30mins/hour of meeting) at:
£20 per hour flat rate
Paid directly to the individual on a monthly basis
For a normal task group member, this would be estimated as £60 for a 2 hour meeting plus 1 hour prep.
